This and that

Though it should not be necessary at this point, here is the standard spoiler warning. Don’t read further if you wish to retain any hope of launch day surprise. The closer we get to Battle for Azeroth, the fewer in-depth topics I am able to come up with. Today will be just a scattershot of … Continue reading This and that

A plea for simple gear

Yes, I know the actual full expansion does not go live until a month from now, but the pre-expansion patch … Continue reading Ends are also beginnings
